Reply To: Dealing with a Dilemma – Open-ended Story


On the other hand he just could not leave the scholarship thing behind, it was his dream, his goal, his life and many years of his life studying as hard as he could to reach this point. While taking a walk, he thought the world is just spinning around him. What a dilemma! What should he do? What was the right thing? And obviously he could not take his mom with him; they could not afford it. This was not even a choice. After a few minutes he came up with an idea; to go to the collage and take his mom to hospital and visit him on the weekends. He thought it was a fair choice, his mind was calmer now. He said to himself that maybe it is the best thing and he could go to college and take care of his mom. He took a deep breath, on his way it was a recording store. “Let’s go and buy some music records!” Jack said to himself. While he was checking around, he heard a beautiful music playing, he closed his eyes and chuckled until he heard music saying: “Heavens! But how about an ungrateful child, ungrateful child; a heartless child, cruel child…” He suddenly felt dizzy again, he could not bear standing there for one single second. He said to himself. ” Okay, maybe that was just a sign to change my choice. I won’t leave my mother, that’s what I am going to do, when my mom is better, then I will attend to collage, I will wait one more year.” On his way he noticed a book store. He felt that he could buy a new book. He entered and first book he saw was a poetry book, he opened a page and started reading: “How a man can be certain, if he can see tomorrow’s dawn again? What simply can living mean? If it is not meant to chase after your dreams?” That was it. It could not be any better. What on earth was really going on? If it was a sign too, which one should he go after?
